Stray dog

A reminder that despite pain and suffering there is a will to survive.

Sketch of the day in my moleskine sketchbook is of a Stray dog who came to my gate on my birthday and called out to me for help.

I was so distraught and heartbroken to see him so skinny and he had a twitchy shoulder. I went back to give him some food and water. After he finished eating, he left, never to be seen again.

I called my best friend who is an expert on strays and she said this is my birthday blessing.

I’m not sure what lesson I am to learn here but I could not take the dog in.
